After an absolutely beautiful, mild summer day, we gathered out in the back yard for a Seafood Extravaganza Evening. Celebrating my weight loss milestone, and Geoffrey’s return to the Yoke of Working Man Oppression on Monday, we worked our way through mounds of scallops, steamers, and lobster, a tomato, onion and smoked mozzarella salad with micro basil, grilled corn and fresh peach shortcake for dessert. This is how I imagined summers: with friends in the back yard with the dining set. We need to do this more often – although this summer is nearly over. A goal for next year, then.
